Medical Claims

Whenever we undergo a surgical procedure, the potential risks and hazards are always explained to us in great detail. But sometimes things do not go according to plan, leaving the patients and their families to deal with the consequences.

For many years, the medical negligence solicitors at Fentons Solicitors has fought for medical claims on behalf of individuals who have been affected by illness or injury caused by or relating to surgery.

Each of our medico-legal specialists are vastly experienced in handling medical claims on behalf of people who have sustained scarring, injury or trauma as a result of surgical negligence. We have successfully pursued cases from all surgical fields, including:

  • General surgery
  • Neurological
  • Gynaecological
  • Cardio Thoracic surgery
  • Anaesthetic-related problems
  • Ear, nose and throat surgery
  • Keyhole surgery
  • Vascular surgery

Particularly common medical negligence injuries include:

  • Perforation of internal organs during surgery
  • Haemorrhaging resulting from surgical error
  • Excessive scarring arising from surgical error
  • Poor post-operative care leading to illness or infection
  • Incorrect anaesthesia resulting in pain and trauma
  • Misdiagnosis leading to incorrect surgical procedure
  • Premature death as a result of surgical error

If you or a family member has been affected by any of the above or suffered illness or injury as a result of a surgical procedure, you could be entitled to make a medical negligence claim for compensation.

Our expert medical negligence lawyers and medically-trained staff are able to immediately understand the issues affecting you and your loved ones, offering you the best advice on how to proceed and whether you are able to make a claim.

If you have received a sub-standard level of care whilst undergoing surgery or any associated treatment, the medical negligence team at Fentons can help you. Our friendly, sympathetic medical negligence specialists are on hand to listen to your story and offer you the best practical advice on what options are open to you, and whether you have a strong legal case. They will work with you to compile the necessary evidence to prove that there was a failure in the care that you or your loved one received, securing and maximising your compensation.
